hey BD, Little Feat came up here years ago ( no Lowell of course ) and I said WTF? It was a dry concert season ( as usual ) so I thought, well It'll be a lame shell but will probably not be too bad. Boy was I wrong. They KILLED it man. Threw it down and shredded. Excellent show.

Saw them twice right after they regrouped. The first time was in a place called the Boat House down in the Tidewater area (can't remember if it was Norfolk or Hampton) which was kind of like seeing them in a really big bar. The second time around Let It Roll had really taken off and they were playing at The Mosque. Both were great shows.

I saw them several times right after they came back, twice with Bonnie sitting in, and they were great each time. I also really enjoyed Phil and Friends with Paul Barrerre and Billy Payne in the line up that I saw at Shoreline. That said, haven't gone out of my way to see them since - but kudos to them for still getting at it.

Wilco has newer show up in their roadcase section of their website. Now on the road opening for Neil - would like to see some of those collaborations.

Great link! I only got to see them once, in Nov 2003. About the second song of the set a security guard grabs me, shines a light in my face and tries to eject me. Turns out the guy next to me was smoking a joint. The guy tells security he was the guilty one and they kicked him out. Bummer. Little Feat wrote a tour diary in Relix about these shows and the nazi security tactics that were deployed directed at pot smokers. It turned out that some of the bands friends were kicked out too, people who were supposed to show them around the island. The band put on a great show in spite of this, even jamming Dark Star and playing Tennessee Jed as part of a Dixie Chicken sandwich.
